Further information

Rachel Lawell is a successful emerging artist specialising in fine art painting. Her work is highly influenced by film and in her paintings she examines and challenges traditional representations of women in cinema. 

A series of paintings has been particularly inspired by the female icons of the James Bond films of the 1960s-70s, or the ‘Bond Girls’ played by beautiful actresses. The portrayal of these female characters reflects and reveals misogynistic, sexist and racist undertones for which the Bond films are notorious. Lawell rejects this representation, and confident, strong white, black and Asian women become the protagonists of her paintings.
